Between walls of brick

How long can men thrive between walls of brick, walking on asphalt pavements, breathing the fumes of coal and of oil, growing, working, dying, with hardly a thought of wind, and sky, and fields of grain, seeing only machine-made beauty, the mineral-like quality of life?
Charles A. Lindbergh

some more than others, i guess... strangely enough when I'm for too long apart from a city, i miss the noises, the colours, the bricks... maybe we get to a point when we cannot actually live without it... despite the need of nature, which is tremendous, of course.

Yes, despite all the bad things, big city is an environment that offers so much energy, diversity, and so many different events and food for brain and soul.
And i totally understand you, i too am addicted to big cities:)
